However, when Sydney Rye's good friend and fellow Joyful Justice council member, Merl, goes missing in Shanghai, she and her dog, Blue, rush to the People's Republic to track him down. Following Merl's trail leads Sydney into the darkest corners of China's corruption, where she witnesses atrocities that make her already cold blood freeze.
With time running out and powerful forces closing in on her, Sydney has to risk everything to save her friend. The question is, will everything be enough?

Shadow Harvest begins with Sydney Rye arriving with her dog Blue, in Shanghai looking for her friend Merle. Merle and his three dogs have disappeared without a trace. As Sydney goes deeper into China with a guide hired by Joyful Justice, Sydney is discovering the dark side of China and what they do with political prisoners.
As Sydney gets comfortable with being part of Joyful Justice, she is also faced with another dilemma of someone who wishes to destroy Joyful Justice by using her past against her and those who associate with her.
What I like about this series is that each book could be read as a stand-alone. It provides Sydney's past and what has transpired since then. The story is well-told with leads that Sydney followed up with which leads closer to finding her friend and mentor Merle. As each leads played out, it is filled with actions and dangers as Sydney get closer in finding her find Merle.
The narrator Sonja Field does a very good job in narrating the story. She makes the story memorable. She provides the Sydney Rye as being as a street-smart agent. There are moment where Sydney acts before thinking such as trying to charge in to a secluded Tai Chi Resort.
Sydney is never without her dog Blue. Blue has always provided Sydney some warnings wherever danger is closed by. Blue is Sydney's good luck charm.
